CricketMitchell Starc IPL Auction price hurt BCCI: League Chairmain

Srinagar: In a major statement that is going to impact future Indian Premier League (IPL) players auction, the league chairmain Arun Dhumal has said that Mitchell Starc’s whopping Rs 24.75 with KKR has hurt BCCI and the board will work on to avoid pay disparity.

In the players auction 2023 for season 2024, on December 19th in Dubai, Australian pace duo Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins bagged two of the most lucrative deals ever with the former going to KKR and the latter heading over to the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Arun Dhumal now has said that there will be new policies to avoid pay disparity going forward
While Mitchell Starc earned a 24.75 crore deal, Cummins was splashed 20.5 crores and that created a major indifference in terms of pricing of local players and foreign players.

“We have taken note of the pay disparity it creates. We will definitely conduct a review and come out with a new policy to address the issue. A few ideas have come in. We will discuss with the franchises as well before deciding further.” – Dhumal said via Hindustan Times.

“When new franchises come in, how would they form their team? In an engaging competition like IPL, people must keep their thinking cap on. We offer the option of retaining 3 to 4 players to the teams.” – Arun Dhumal added.
